Therapy for Young Adults
Therapy can help you transition into adulthood.
With student debt, the job market and housing costs in the Bay Area being what they are, more and more young adults are returning home to live with their parents. The financial benefits are clear but there can be an interpersonal price to pay.
You have lived independently and undoubtedly grown during your time away from your family. What if your values and community have diverged from those with which your parents raised you?
How can you advocate for your needs in a family that may have remained pretty much the same? How do you communicate your evolution to your family in a respectful way which elicits respect in return?
Your relationship with your folks is no longer a parent/child one, but neither is it a relationship of equals. How can your behavior benefit this new configuration of adult/adult relationship? It may be paying rent in the room you used to inhabit for free. It may be consistency in your communication.
And what if you’re making your best effort and they continue to treat you like the child you were?
I can help you navigate this new territory.
